COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hoppy, farmhouse style ale has a champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. Similar to the Belgian Saison style , this beer serves well as an aperitif. Hennepin has a majestic golden hue. The style is called Grisette or farm house and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons.

I am quite suprised that this beer isn’t rated much higher than it is. Gorgeous lacing in the glass. NIce pale straw yellow with a thick head. A little bit of Belgian spiciness in the nose but some hops there too. Evervescent and lots of intricate flavors. Some maltiness capitalized and accentuated by the sugar-sweet tastiness. Hops are present. Well-balanced and beautiful.

Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la Bière. A cloudy yellow beer with medium head. Nose is on grapefruit and yeast. Aroma is on sweet malt, astringency, orange zest, orange peel, grapefruit, lot of yeast notes. Finish is bitter and astringent with long duration.

Possibly the first saison which I've liked. It's visually amazing. Smells good and tastes lovely. If it wasn't 7.7% I could drink this all day. And night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dbhenry (124) - El Paso, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2014
This delicate tasting , light yellow ale is fine. The flavors are complex, with several herbs being apparent. Medium hoppiness and a light body make this a good afternoon drink.

swesson (230) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2014
From a bomber. Pours a cloudy golden and forms a frothy, thick head that dissipates after a short while. Almost champagne-type bubbly. Smells of fresh hops, lemons, and spice. Tastes of fresh hops, citrus, grass, and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Nice saison. Fruity esters and wheat aroma. Very earthy. Golden Chardonnay color. Light palate with a tartness and good carbonation. Tart fruit flavors followed by a grainy and grassy essence. Slight alcoholic tint at the finish. Lingering.

Sjohnh (163) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from beer gonzo. Hazy straw colour with a good frothy white head. Aroma is fruity and Belgian yeast. Fruity - mostly pear - with a slight tartness, noticeable coriander spicing and a dry finish. Not too much pepper or bitterness. Very easy drinking for 7.7%. Before this, I’ve only tried Three Philosophers from this brewery, which is absolutely awesome. This ain’t bad either.

Pleasant aroma that does not deliver on the taste. Tart and astringent with a fair bit of yeast.

Quite a lot of spice and bitterness. A little bit of an aftertaste. Color golden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
